Style Stealer: Alexa Chung’s Chanel clogs on an ASOS budget

Ever since Alexa Chung appeared on the cover of UK Vogue’s March issue, one thing was clear: clogs were on the way back “in”.

Is this a good thing or a bad thing, we ask ourselves? Well, we’ve never really been huge fans of the clog, but at the same time, we wouldn’t slap these particular ones in jail either, so you could say we’re on the fence on this one.

What we DEFINITELY wouldn’t do, though, is pay Chanel prices for shoes like this. So it’s a good job we don’t have to, because if we did suddenly decide we couldn’t last one more day without a pair of Alexa-like heeled clogs on our hooves, at least we know ASOS are selling these ones for £85. No, they’re not Chanel, and nor do they look it, but if you really like this look, at least they’ll save you a bit of money.

What do you think of clogs?

    Does Alexa Chung’s style strike anyone else as immensely boring? In a way that wacky shoes won’t really fix?

    Ew, not a fan of clogs. Not a fan at all.

    Rebecca – I agree that her style gets a bit dull. But she’s still one very sexy lady, so that makes up for it! :drool:

    I have no problem with these particular clogs-they just look like backless ankle boots. However, there are some particularly awful ones out there. Those Louis Vuitton clogs should be burned.

    Horrible, horrible things! Please send them back to shoe hell, where they obviously belong. They’ve ruined her otherwise cute outfit. Btw, she looks uncannily like Katherine Moennig here.

    I’m not a fan of any backless shoes, if only for the annoying slap-slap-slap sound they make as the wearer walks.

    IMHO, clogs are an item the world doesn’t need 🙂

    I actually really like the clog! I think they are super cute with a peasanty outfit, a cute frilly button-down shirt and a flowy skirt. But one thing is for sure, they’re pretty but not super practical and you definitely not fun to walk long distances in.
